Extortionists Wipe Thousands of Databases, Victims Who Pay Up Get Stiffed

Hello folks,

I just read today an interesting article entitled: Extortionists Wipe Thousands of Databases, Victims Who Pay Up Get Stiffed and this caught my attention because of the fact that these databases may have been used for something. I’m not too familiar with Mongo DB, but It think it may be similar to what SQL databases do for software like WordPress which is used for blogs like mine. I did get E-mailed that the blog was auto updated, and I do like that feature when its available. I wish it would just upgrade like that all the time, but major releases we must do. I do my best to keep my softare on my site up to date, and I think it is a good idea we do this. Even the plug ins we use must be updated to fix holes.

This goes back to what I have said in my last post about Windows and Shaun’s opinions that indicate that it is the same old shit and it is. Sadly, the reason why the podcast had not been updated much in 2015 was because this is all we saw. Sadly, realizing that this is a never ending battle, we must push on and talk about our experiences where applicable when a breach occurs.

This is why I started blogging when I’ve gotten notified abvout a breach like the Yahoo! breach and of course the first potential situation of Ransomware where I attended a shchool with these two posts. I even gave my thoughts on tech and politics to top it off.

I think that sharing information and talking about our experiences are good and in no way am I bashing this post dealing with the ongoing patch tuesday.

I feel like sharing articles and opinions like the main title of the post will highlight and put out good things, and may help people find things they may be interested in. If you’ve used Mongo DB, I’d love to learn more about it, as I am not too familiar with it, so seeing this was facinating. Thoughts?
